Mystery: Maximum Redemption: (Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Suspense Thriller Mystery) by Morris Fenris

Maximum Redemption is a thought-provoking drama about redemption. It is a Christmas story of hope, of human kindness and forgiveness, of mistakes, altruism and regrets. It is engaging, entertaining and surprising – a suspenseful crime thriller that’s filled with twists and turns.

The arrest of Maxwell Sheppard, internationally renowned and despised conman, made worldwide news. Max made a fortune duping the mega rich with an ingenious Ponzi scheme, but then his luck ran out.

As part of his punishment, the district attorney forces Max to read letters from people he’s hurt and respond to each of them. One of these letters, penned by a teenage boy, stuns him and sends him on a quest to right his wrongs; to save a small town of hard working, innocent people from losing their homes.
********************************************************************************************************
Amazon Reader Reviews:
*********************************************************************************************************
“Funny and suspenseful story that is really several mysteries in one, with more than enough twists and turns. Fenris is a masterful storyteller, and in Maximum Redemption he examines a criminal with a personal code, what is the nature of punishment, and how to right the wrongs our actions create. You won’t know who to trust or where everything is leading.

Max lead a Ponzi scheme that bilked the rich, and his brother got away but he ended up in federal prison. There he begins acts of reconciliation and redemption, and when he learns his actions hurt actual working people he feels a need to make right on his crimes for the first time. He has a huge leverage card because the feds haven’t found his hidden money yet. What follows is a pageturner where we don’t know how the innocent families were hurt in the first place, where the money is hidden, how he can help them in time before Christmas, and what the end result will be.

I loved the Max-Wilson dynamic–definitely “buddy film” worthy with both laughs and seriousness inherent in their dialogue and interactions. Max’s maneuverings were smart and engaging, and I loved the details about all of his message and money hiding arrangements. Lots of suspenseful fun, with questions about Robin Hood type ethics too. Well done!”
********************************************************************************************************

“A good read! An easy to read crime thriller.

The main character, Max, is a real smart bloke and he has figured out how he can make billions, but his next challenge is how to keep it and not be jailed or killed in the process.

With his quick wit and well thought out plans, he manages to bring this about, but along the way he finds out that hundreds of people in a small town are going to be harmed by someone who has basically hijacked his system. These people are going to lose their homes a week before Christmas.

It was never his intention to harm everyday workers. His targets were those who could afford to lose millions and not be financially inconvenienced.

He has to set right the wrong that has been done before he can find peace of mind and retire as was his intended plan. A Special Agent unknowingly helps him make this come about.”
********************************************************************************************************
“Again Fenris blows me away with his storytelling. This suspense story kept me reading until the end..without putting the book down once! I felt like I was reading a Grisham novel. Anyway, I highly recommend this novel. And Fenris if you read this – awesome job, keep up the good work!”

This is certainly the case when the bodies of the most outstanding players on the State College football team start being discovered brutally murdered.

Why would anyone want to murder these guys? Detective Walker has to put family and everything else aside to solve these crimes before anyone else falls victim to this vicious killer the press is now calling “The Card Counter”.

As each victim turns up, the case becomes more traumatic and bizarre. The killer has a point to make and will continue to make people pay with their lives . . . until Walker and the rest of the city GETS IT!! Find out who is murdered next and follow Detective Walker until he uncovers the truth behind these killings, the twisted motive for this murderous rampage.

Amazon Reader Reviews of ‘Mystery Thriller & Suspense: “The Card Counter” A Horror Crime Fiction Detective Murder Mysteries book as part of Conspiracy Thrillers with Serial Killers’:

“Brilliant and riveting book! James Kipling has once again mastered his method of throwing the reader straight into this dark fantasy right from the start. An excellent detective story creatively wrapped into a mystery and suspense thriller. Extremely well written. Crime and Mystery fills the pages as dead bodies are found all over the place. An intellectual murder and mystery thriller as this detective does what he does best adding being a good father to this weird thought thrilling equation.

James Kipling has the book glued to your hands with his exciting writing style with crime and murder twists and turns. I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy the Author’s books but those enjoying a mystery and suspense thriller captivated in a dark fantasy. Yet again, Brilliant! ”

“This is a great pick when you need an intellectual puzzle, a suspensful thriller, and crime fiction with the thread of revenge running through it. The procedural is written in the first person, so we really get to know Devon, and that’s a great thing because he’s a cool guy. I liked his devotion to fatherhood, especially since we don’t have near enough serious genre characters who are also dads. Through his eyes we understand the high personal stakes he brings to all of his work, and especially to this case involving murdered students. I loved the way the relationship with his own daughter Cassie aids his work both as indirect inspiration and also directly. Big points to Kipling for pulling off those unique scenes.

The darker elements of the story don’t suffer at all from the family themes, in fact, kids are at risk throughout the whole story. Walker is a father but he’s first and foremost a relentless detective, and there is a lot of tension and action pushing the plot forward. Untangling the mystery is great, in a ripped from vengeful headlines way. Highly recommend this one for fans of crime fiction and suspenseful thrillers.”

“This is a hard book to put down! It follows Detective Jake Walker through a multiple homicide investigation, as well as his family life as he tries to be a good dad to his three daughters and deal with his ex-wife at the same time. Once the killings commence, it’s a roller coaster ride until the very end of the book. I ended up turning the pages as fast as I could in order to see what would happen next, because the author does a great job of keeping the reader guessing. Just when you think you know the pattern of the story, it twists an entirely different way. I thought I knew who the killer would turn out to be, and of course, I was completely wrong. Detective Walker’s character is very well-developed, so that the reader gets to know him both professionally and personally. Overall, this is a very readable suspenseful book that will keep you wanting more from this author.”

Cry of the Needle by Roger Radford

When medical malpractice leads to violent revenge, Irish-style…

Kieran Kelly’s world turns upside down when his wife’s health is devastated by an epidural in childbirth. Incensed by damning evidence of medical and pharmaceutical misconduct, the tormented former IRA hit man plots revenge against those he deems responsible, including a government that doesn’t seem to care.

Kelly’s quest brings him face-to-face with an alcoholic physician, an altruistic scientist and a corrupt government minister – but not before the love of a stunningly beautiful but crippled Countess makes him question his motives. He meets Countess Magda von Esterhazy at a meeting of a self-help group for victims of the uniquely painful iatrogenic (doctor-caused) disease that struck down his wife. Magda awakens feelings that he thought he had lost forever.

Meanwhile, one of Kelly’s targets, scientist Jonathan Tring, finds himself embroiled in the Machiavellian machinations of his boss, the gruff and corrupt owner of a pharmaceutical company, and the man’s stunning young American wife. In all the mayhem, Tring, too, finds love – and desperately wants to live to enjoy it.

Cry of the Needle is a searing tale of love and vengeance. Revenge that is a dish best served Irish.

CAUTION:
THE NAMES HAVE NOT BEEN CHANGED TO PROTECT THE GUILTY

The Starlight Club was jumping . . .

“They looked like mob guys. They had that arrogance exuded by those who liked to intimidate – those who were the proud purveyors of fear.” Amidst the nightly gaiety was the back room, where business deals were made, hits were ordered, and territories were divided.

Trenchie is just released from his ten year prison sentence. A new life is waiting – complete with envelopes of money and a steak house to call his own. He finds the woman of his dreams who brings along ex-husband baggage. Hit man Jimmy The Hat finds unexpected fame in the most unlikely of places, yet he always stays true to the “boys”, especially Big Red. “Crazy Joey Gallo” and his brothers break away from the Profaci family and go “rogue, on their own now. They split their gang into several small groups and spread them out over the five boroughs.”
